The Russians are debating what to do with the fungi sprouting cadaver of Lenin, the author of the failed policy of Soviet Communism.
Russian President Putin has spoken out against removing Lenin from the Red Square mausoleum and placing him in the ground.
Putin said that many people in Russia associate their lives with Lenin. To bury him would say that they have worshipped false values, and that they lived their lives in vain.
This same argument is used by President Bush in promoting the continuation of a failed policy in Iraq, so that our dead military people will not have died in vain.
